painting pictures with words. tongue tickling cheek.

I write short stories, tall tales, love letters, newspaper and magazine editorials, corporate literature, screenplays, and in my diary.
I write about experiences. I flirt with words. I spin sentences. I dance with metaphors. I create new clichés.
